I have a w510 that i think is a bit noisy. Fan is running all the time, even when i am browsing. I sent it to Lenovo Service Center, but they told me there was nothing to be done, because a I7 processors make so much heat and bla bla bla.....
Is there somebody who has been having this problem, and solved it with sucess ?
And what did you exactly do ?
And yes, i have tried tpFan control.
Would be nice with a few smart replies.

Thanks for your attention.
I am running undocked. I have also tried different settings in the power manager. My cpu is set to automatic.
I have also been cleaning the fan with compressed air, and nothing seems to help.
I see that some people in the forum does not have this problem, but others have.
Somebody tried to replace the thermal paste ?

What's your W510 System Temperature if the power plan Maximum Battery Life is selected?
Have a nice day!

My temperature on cpu is between 48-54 C, (4cores), and my gpu around 50-51 C.
Have been regulary checking with SIW.
The temps are pretty normal. What fan RPM are you seeing?

The only way I know to lower the fan noise any further is to make changes to the Power Manager profile and set the proc to Adaptive, and the fan to lower noise. This is actually more annoying to some folks because it constantly cycles the fan on an off.
2800 rpm is pretty low and rather quite. I can't get mine to go below 3300 while docked.
